What is merino wool?

Merino wool comes from the Merino breed sheep and is made up of a simple blend of air, water, sunshine and grass. As the world's leading global supplier, Australia is known for producing some of the finest wool in the world, accounting for 25% of the global supply and 90% of all fine apparel wool.

the benefits of

merino wool

A premium natural fibre, Merino wool is celebrated all over the world for its unparalleled natural qualities. Naturally soft, breathable, odour and stain resistant, Merino wool is an innovative natural fibre that can be worn all year round for work and play. 

wear more, wash less

Merino wool is naturally odour resistant

With the ability to absorb up to 35% of its own weight in moisture, wool helps keep the skin surface drier and discourages the bacterial growth which is responsible for odour. This means you can wear your garment more and wash less, saving you time, water and energy which makes it better for the environment.

Keeps you warm and cool

Merino wool is a natural insulator

Naturally temperature regulating, Merino wool keeps you warm in winter, and cool in summer. When hot, wool absorbs and transfers heat and moisture from the skin to be evaporated in the air and when cool, the fibre traps pockets of air in its natural crimp to keep you warm.


100% natural, renewable and biodegradable, each year a new fleece is produced and naturally biodegrades, providing nutrients back to the soil instead of accumulating in landfill or oceans.
